Building equitable workplaces and communities

Wendy's team members

We want Wendy’s to be a great place to eat, and a great place to work and build a career. We support our Company employees by providing competitive benefits, recognition programs and resource groups. We’re also proud to share a goal with steps we will take to increase the representation of underrepresented populations among our Company’s leadership and management, as well as the diversity of our franchisees.


We strive to bring our values to the communities where we do business. We know we cannot achieve change on our own, but we intend to be part of the solution. From our longstanding support of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to establishing community-based partnerships to advance social justice, we’re always striving to do the right thing.

"A diverse workplace is an effective workplace and—most importantly—fosters a culture of inclusion in which everyone is represented. That’s why Wendy’s is committed to increasing the representation of underrepresented populations within our leadership and management levels and franchise owners.”
